Kicking it Old School

Who needs TV? Thanks Aunt Sara for such a fun toy!

Can I just say I am having a lovely afternoon? I went to The Fresh Market yesterday, bought myself a french baguette, soft goat cheese, a selection of olives and a pint of raspberries. Lydia is sleeping, Shane is still at church, and I am picnicking on my tasty treats while I lounge around in my (amazingly!) clean house. A pot of my favorite cold weather soup bubbling on the stove. Not too shabby..... it almost seems like I have my life together. I have to record these types of days to remind myself they are possible. (Like two days ago when Shane was out of town, my house looked like a hurricane hit it, I was so overwhelmed with pregnancy hormones that I was crying over paint samples, and for dinner we dined on raman noddles. Nice.)

I don't want to rain on your beautiful day, but I thought you couldn't eat goat cheese while pregnant...or brie. I've been sad about that for 9 months.

Actually, I have switched to Laughing Cow cheese for the diration since you can eat that. I forgot it isn't actually real goats cheese. I think it may be a form of swiss. I will have to check that out.

And brie is gross.

I was about to make the same comment as Emily. I don't think brie has any flavor. No feta on salad would be my sad loss. Feta cheese on a salad of poppyseed dressing, cranberries, raw sunflower seeds, and chow noodles...yum.
I just made delicious cinnamon rolls. Not quite so quaint as your fresh market dainties, but they're sure making my evening cozy.

No. Brie has a flavor. Kind of like spit up.

I just found out you can't eat sprouts and radishes. Oops, I've been eatting sprouts on my salads.

My boys love playing with their viewfinders too! I remember loving mine when I was little!
